Homemade Gardener’s Soap Recipe

When I really get into my gardening activities, I often step out of the garden looking like a kid who has just discovered a puddle. We have made homemade laundry soap in a previous post, but today I would like to talk about this homemade gardener’s soap recipe a friend gave me.

I personally have stayed away from making any soaps, thinking that it would be difficult and require a lot of ingredients. This recipe however is very simple and only takes a few minutes to cook up your own soap. As for the ingredients, I just ordered them on Amazon.com as suggested.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • melt and pour soap
  • sea salt
  • epsom salt
  • food coloring (optional)
  • essential oil (optional)
  • silicon mold
  • microwave safe bowl
  • knife
  • wooden spoon

It is easier and faster to melt the soap when it is in smaller cubes, therefore take your knife and cut it into those. Then you have to slowly melt the cubes in 15 second intervals, in the microwave. Make sure that you stir well until it has melted.

If you are going to color it, this is the perfect time to do it otherwise the salts must be added very fast. All that is left is to pour into the molds and then leave it to harden for at least half an hour. That is all there is to it, I cling wrap mine and store it in our shed.
